Expressions of interest now open: Arts and Culture Reference Group

Expressions of interest are now open for Cardinia Shire’s Arts and Culture Reference Group.

The group helps Council to identify community needs and priorities in relation to local arts and culture.

 Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Brett Owen encouraged residents to apply and help contribute to the development of a strong profile for the arts in Cardinia Shire.

“Arts and Culture Reference Group community representatives play an important role in informing Council of the artistic and cultural needs of the community and contributing to Council’s arts and cultural programs and services.

“The group also provides informed local community input into the delivery of Council’s Arts and Culture Policy, Action Plan, Public Art Policy and Arts and Cultural Facilities Feasibility Study,” Cr Owen said.

There are currently three community representative positions available on the committee, which meets quarterly. Community members are joined by three council officers and Councillors Stephanie Davies, Graeme Moore and Jeff Springfield.

Residents from all levels of involvement in the arts, from recreation to professional, are encouraged to apply. Applications are open to all ages.
